Zebco Pro Staff Spincast Reel

Zebco Pro Staff spincast reels have been favorites among the country’s multi-species anglers for many yearsNew for 2007, the entire Pro Staff spincast line has been totally redesigned to make it even better; plus, spinning and baitcast reels have been added to the family, providing even more options for fishermen who like high-end design reels at value pricing. 

 

The renowned “workhorse” Pro Staff family now consists of five reels in all – two spincast, two spinning and one baitcast. All are also available in rod and reel combinations, featuring a brand new split-grip rod handle design.  The PS2010 and PS2020 are the spincast models.

 

The 2010 is ideal for light to medium fishing needs and comes pre-spooled with 130 yds of 6 lb. test. Gear ratio is 4.3:1, retrieving about 19" of line per turn of the handle. The PS2020 is the perfect all-around fishing size and comes pre-spooled with approximately 150 yds of 8 lb. test line. Gear ratio is 3.3:1, retrieving about 18" of line per crank.

 

Both spincast models feature a machined aluminum cover that is threaded and screws on to stay put. They have three ball-bearings, dual no-cut ceramic pickup pins, Magnum star adjustable drag systems and interchangeable left or right-hand cranking.  A unique and really handy feature is a line weight indicator located on the rear of the thumb button, allowing the angler to change the setting each time a new line weight is spooled.

Zebco 808 Bowfisher

Right on target

It takes a lot of guts to hang with an arrow being launched from a bow and then retrieving it back, often with a sizeable fish in tow. But the Zebco 808 Bowfisher, long considered by bowfishermen to be the best for the job, is indeed in a league of its own now with the reel’s recent round of significant improvements.

On the heels of technological advances, the 808 Bowfisher is tougher and more powerful than before. The reel has a stainless steel ball-bearing drive, precision metal gears with power torque gear-set for greater cranking power, and a wide range Dual-Cam drag system. The stainless steel cover is corrosion protected and it threads onto the reel’s body to keep it solidly secured through the roughest of handling.

 

The 808 Bowfisher comes pre-spooled with approximately 130 yds of 80 lb. test bow-fishing line. Line retrieve is handled instantly by a dual pickup pin system featuring long lasting, no-cut ceramic pins. Reel color is matte black.

Zebco Slab Seeker Depth Locator Reels

Micro-sized, taking ultra-light fishing to new depths

The unique Zebco Slab Seeker Depth Locator spinning and spincast reels are getting more and more credit for what they do down below by taking crappie fishing reel performances to new heights. New for 2007 are two Micro-sized reels, one spinning and one spincast, for the ultimate handling of 4 lb. test line.

           

The new little spincast model is the SLDLM Micro. It is a ball-bearing reel with a star drag and multi-stop anti-reverse. Its Depth Locator feature allows anglers to “mark” a preferred depth by setting the DL switch so the bait can be dropped to that same spot again and again.

           

The SDL10 Micro is the new ultralight spinning version. It has a ball-bearing drive and front adjustable drag. It, too, has the Depth Locator feature that can be set immediately when a strike is detected in order to return back to that magical fish-catching depth.

           

Both of the new reels can be changed for right or left hand cranking. And both are also available in combination with a matching rod.

Zebco Model 22 Reel

Joins Authentic Family

Zebco introduces a new member into the legendary authentic spincast family, the Zebco 22. Little brother to America’s longtime favorite reel, the Zebco 33, the new 22 model has all the same impressive family traits, but in a smaller, lighter size.

           

The Zebco 22 has the traditional “Authentic” Zebco family look – black and silver – and is a ball-bearing drive reel. It features dual ceramic pickup pins for long life and instant line pickup. Plus, the reel’s selective multi-point anti-reverse can be disengaged to allow back-reeling.

           

Like all Zebco spincast models, the 22 is an easy to use push-button reel. Designed for medium-light fishing, the 22 has a dial-adjustable drag control ready to handle whatever is on the other end of the line. The reel’s durable die cast handle is interchangeable to either side to accommodate right or left-hand users. Gear ratio is 3.3:1. The reel comes pre-spooled with 125 yds of quality 8 lb. test line.

 

The Zebco 22 also has the Auto Bait Alert feature, allowing the turning on or off of the reel’s anti-reverse and audible bait clicker for the type of fishing preferred.  For more information on the 22 Reel, visit www.zebco.com

Zebco 606 LE Rod/Reel Combo

 A MH 7’ rod with telescoping butt section

The brand new Zebco 606 LE rod and reel combo, belonging to the world’s most famous family of reels, is further proof that the company understands anglers and their needs.

 

The innovation in this combo, model 1645 TK, comes in the form of the outfit’s 7' rod. Although it is a traditional 2 pc detachable rod like most anglers are accustomed to, the butt section of the rod partially “telescopes” back into the handle, much like many of the popular flippin’ sticks do, making it a shorter broken-down length for more convenient carrying and storing. When collapsed, the rod and reel fit into a variety of places where other rods and reels can’t go – under the seat, behind the seat in compact pickups, in the trunk, etc.

 

The reel is Zebco’s beefy model 606 LE. It is made for medium-heavy fishing and comes pre-spooled with 90 yds of quality 20 lb. test line.  Going deeper into the guts of the reel reveals sturdy all-metal gears and a wide-range dual-cam drag construction to provide just the right amount of line tension needed for reeling in catches of all sizes. Plus, the stainless steel pickup pin provides for long life and smooth line pickup. The reel also has a star adjustable drag and a built-in Hook Keeper

 

This 7` rod is durable Z-glass construction in a medium-heavy action. The handle is EVA for a comfortable, yet sturdy grip.
